As I was conducting some… *ahem* research *ahem* at work, I stumbled upon a video on YouTube that was truly amazing, at least to speed and car nuts.
It is a proof of concept that one can actually skydive, in a car. Judging from the mass, coefficient of drag, gravitational forces and the cross sectional area of the car, I am able to roughly calculate that the car’s terminal velocity to be about 255km/h. Pretty fast, that.
Should anybody, or party in South East Asia be willing to sponsor such an… experiment in Malaysia, know that TCG would love to give it a go. We’ll have to stock up on diapers first, though.
Andrew is a man of many talents (some hidden). He often baffles many with his uncanny ability to stay awake for an inhuman number of days, then disappears. For hours. TCG labels him “Comatose Man” for his nocturnal endeavours and sleep super powers.
Trained professionally to shoot people in the face, he has recently focused his photography talents to his other passion – cars. A qualified driving instructor with HPC Motorsports, he’s also a talented driver and can be seen outbraking and overtaking Type-Rs at Sepang in his limited edition Satria R3.
In between not sleeping, shooting and eating (he’s a huge foodie, any time of the day), he writes. And write well he does!
